      I live in AZ, and watched Nico Mannion a bit in the state playoffs (his team won the high school championship, largely due to his amazeballs skills).  The kid is a mad baller.

      Does anyone have any insight?  We all know his dad played for the Utes, and he’s considering Utah along with AZ & UCLA.  Bobby Hurley was at the high school championship game hoping to woo Nico to ASU.  I think Duke & KY have expressed interest too.

      Anyway, he has skills and he would be a HUGE get for the Utes.  I’m not sure Larry K has ever received a commitment from a player as highly ranked & rated as Nico?  And while I admit I rarely put too much stock in rankings & ratings, I’m always amazed by what Coach K can do with players that come in almost always under the radar.  I’d love to see what he could do with a Nico Mannion kinda guy.

      How much $$ have AU and UCLA offered him?  Did his visit to Kentucky have a happy ending?

        Come on…it’s not just about money. It’s about the total compensation package they’re offering – salary, benefits, PTO, 401(k), etc. Not sure we can match all that.

        Nico is the son of Pace Mannion.  The kid is dynamite

      Would be amazing to land that kind of talent. It’s the way the Utes get over the hump and take down a conference title and make some noise in the Big Dance again.

      Do you remember that one highly-touted High School QB prospect from Sammamish, Washington??  I think that happened to him.
